A REAL Doctor!

Dr. E. from the very first has been a kind, caring person which is such a refreshing change from being treated like a number and a "thing" to be worked on! He really cares and he treats a person, not just another body.... He's awesome! Some of these younger hotshot doctors should take some lessons!!
